BigBIG news: Continued
Okay, I'm awake. It hurts. The ultrasound was of course, amazing. There were in fact 2 mini humans in my belly. Baby B was up first. Brain, heart, hands, feet, legs, arms, lips.... All there and all healthy! Baby A up second. Brain, heart, hands, feet, legs..... Yeah, it was scary. Baby A's bladder was so big we couldn't really see much of anything else. We couldn't see the spine. Baby A has what is called megacystis. At least that's the diagnosis as of today. We were whisked away to meet with a doctor and discuss Baby A. Again, scary. Of course they tell us not to worry, but how do you not worry about this little baby you love so much and who is now something so real. Our doctor immediately scheduled an appointment for us to see perinatology (a doctor who specializes in high risk complications/pregnancies). We don't get to go see them until Wednesday, which feels like an eternity away. Please pray for Baby A.
